I wasn't bothered by the numerous errors trying to download 5.0, I knew their servers would be melting, so that was no big deal.
What was more annoying was my Touch failing to back up several times, then when it did eventually back up it failed to restore, leaving me with no option but to continue with a full restore/recovery which deleted all the contents. I then tried to use a back up from a few days ago, and it partially worked but didn't reload some of my apps or any of my music. I started the update with a full 64gb Touch, and I now have 3gb worth of stuff on it, of which 2gb or so won't work.
It still won't sync properly now, so I can't put anything else back on it. Some of my apps are stuck at 'waiting'. The camera is being choosy about when it wants to function. It's being fussy about my location. And there's more, but I'll leave it there!
"It just works". Hmmm. Maybe tomorrow!
I faced problems updating my iPad 2 (error 3014). I switched off my anti virus & firewall & tried again. No issues after that. Took almost 2 hours for the whole process.
Updating iTunes was a bigger headache for me, with my laptop freezing several ties.

Need a favour guys as I cannot get Wifi syncing to work. In iTunes, when you're iDevice is connected, do you see the following on the Summary tab? (click on pics for full size version)
Cos this ain't what I see. I get
Have been through troubleshooting guide and getting nowhere, so just want to check and make sure other people are seeing what I'm not!
Daft question, they're on the same network right?
I haven't tried it yet - after 3 1/2 hours I just powered the PC down and set the iCloud back up and Spotify caching in motion.
On a plus - I set a location reminder for this morning to go off when I got to work and that worked fine.

Yes, I get....
Marantz M-CR603 • Rega R3 loudspeakers • AirPlay • Apple iPad Mini • Apple iPhone 5 • Apple iMac • Apple AirPort Extreme 802.11N • Humax HDR-Fox T2 • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390
Thanks chebby - good to know. Lee - yep, they're on the same network.
Some further digging has revealed the possibility Wifi sync only works on OS X 10.6.8 and above - a little annoying as I'm stuck on 10.5.8 on my PowerPC Mac...
I've not confirmed it yet, but this is certainly looking to be the most likely cause.
I am lucky that my iMac is the very last of the white series 20" (bought in March 2007) with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz and 3GB RAM.
I upgraded it to Snow Leopard 10.6.8 at the same time as I bought my iPhone 4 (in order to have the latest iTunes with AirPlay). It can even be upgraded to Lion although I have chosen to hold off that one until I have to.
iTunes on our other two computers is no problem because they are both Windows which supports the latest iTunes releases. (Even on XP Pro.)
Maybe you can find a good, clean second-hand Mac that will allow all the latest stuff.
I'm already eyeing up a new MacBook Pro...after all, in these situations, you've gotta make lemonade
Probably a bit late for this advice, sorry, but may be use in the future. If you ever successfully download an iOS update but are having dificulties, do a spotlight search for '.ipsw' to find where iTunes has stored the iOS install, then in iTunes Alt click (or shift click for a PC) on either 'check for Update' or 'Restore', this will alow you to manualy search and install iOS. This method is a reported fix for error 3200, as well as a handy get out of jail for many iOS related problems.

If you are planning on a larger model than the 13", then I would be tempted to get the iMac 21.5" (£999) for home and an iPad 2 32GB WiFi+3G (£579) for 'out-and-about'* (and everything else) instead.
Together they only cost £29 more than the basic 15" MacBook Pro.
*Or a cheaper Wifi only model that you can tether to your iPhone.

That's a valid argument - thanks chebby, didn't really think of that. Was thinking of the 13" model to double up for living room use, but then the iPad would make much more sense for that. In which case, I could just get Mac Mini as I've already got the keyboard and screen and don't really need oodles of power any more as Mac is basically just used for iTunes, iPhoto, Spotify etc. If I can offload my Power Mac G5 for a decent price, might be able to convince the other half that's the way to go.
Gonna have a think...
Don't forget the external DVD/CD drive as well. New Mac Minis don't have a built in 'Superdrive' any more. (And according to user reviews on the Apple UK shop, the external MacBook Air SuperDrive is pants!)

Good point - I do have an external USB drive already thankfully.
As close to 100% confirmation you can get of the above (until Apple deign to inform people, which might be weeks). Someone on the Apple forums had the same issue on 10.6.6. He saw my post, upgraded to 10.6.8 and lo and behold, the check box appeared.
Seems absolutely crazy this isn't mentioned in the pre-requisites - WHF team, might be worth updating your news article to mention this for people running older versions of Mac OS X as I know not everyone reads the forums.
For the first time I was pleased that my children woke me up at 5.30am as it meant I could start the whole process again as the majority of the USA were sleeping! So on the 10th attempt the back up and update went through without any hitches albeit very slowly on restoring apps. Not yet had a chance to play as had to come to work but looking forward to getting stuck in tonight.
As I turned off the mac I noticed that I've gone from 20Gb left on my hard drive to 6Gb...definitely need that NAS, but I thought iOS5 was only 770mb. I've not added anything else to my mac so does anyone know why I've "lost" 14Gb??
